They sit in dark stores or lay forgotten in some corner of an attic and no one has a clue who they are. Sometimes they came with the house or property. Spruced up, a tag is attached and they grace some antique booth until someone stops and say, "Yes, that is exactly what I am looking for." Who are they? Where did they live? What did they do in their life? The lesson these forgotten ancestors leave is one that is plain and simple: write in pencil on the back of every family picture the name, date, place, and parentage of any and all. You may know but one day when cousin Hettie is having to dispose of things, or worse that impersonal lawyer or real estate agent, it will be very helpful for that information to be there.
